DescriptionCatherine Crabill of Irvington will challenge incumbent Rob Wittman in the June 8 primary for the Republican Party nomination for the First District seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. She announced her candidacy March 9 during a Tea Party meeting at the Upper Lancaster Volunteer Fire Department firehouse in Lively.

Crabill narrowly lost a race last fall for the District 99 seat in the Virginia House of Delegates held by Democrat Albert Pollard. Crabill had never run for office before the race against Pollard.

Crabill said she feels compelled to run because of a lack of leadership among the current representatives.
